Team Analysis

Stoke

Stoke is having a roller coaster journey in the domestic competition, their most recent match against Southampton have led into a disappointing 0-0 run. This wasn’t the result that Mark Hughes wants for his team after being thrashed by Arsenal at the Emirates stadium.

The club can climb a better position in their leagues standing if they will be able to make a lot of goals on this rally. They can bump off squad like Watford, Bournemouth or Southampton who only hold a single point deficit away from them.

Potters chance of winning this game is at its peaks considering the poor performance that their visitors had this season.

Leicester

Claudio Ranieri is unhappy with the type of play that the current champ has, as this brought them to the 14th spot, and in serious danger of joining the clubs on the relegation zone if their misfortune continue.

The team didn’t see their loss coming from Bournemouth right in front of their supporters in King Power field. A lot have seen how the foxes star players failed to create some important run on their past mathces. Jamie Vardy’s hat trick in their game against the Citizen wasn’t showcased in this rally.

Devastation will surely trigger revenge as Leicester City tries to hold on tight in the current position that they are into. The time to bounce back is on, but it won’t be as easy as it is since the host also wants to redeem themselves back. A good formation and a tactical defense will help them to reject the ball that will come from their contenders.

Prediction

The miserable form of Leicester City will provide Stoke the probability to win this match-up. Fixtures have also shown that the Foxes have struggled in winning their campaigns away from home.

Stoke 2.52 (this odd might change)

Score: 2-1
